A whiskey bottle comforts me
And tells me not to cry
 While a full moon says a prayer for me
I try to close my eyes
But the night's there to remind me
Of the guns and the early graves
The ghosts appear as I fall asleep 
To sing an outlaw's serenade 

[Chorus:]
Dyin' ain't much of a livin'
When you're livin' on the run
Dyin' ain't much of a livin' for the young 
Is it too late to ask for forgiveness 
For the things that I have done
Dyin' ain't much of a livin' for the young 
The desert's been a friend to me
It covers me by night 
And a snakebite's not my enemy 
But it taught me how to fight 
All this fame don't bring you freedom  Though it wears a this disguise 
When an outlaw is just a man to me
And a man has to die

[Chorus:]

[Solo]
And I hope someone will pray for me
When it's my turn to die... pray for me

[Chorus:]
